iPhone works with iCloud, Microsoft Exchange, and many of the most popular Internet-based mail, contacts, and calendar service providers.

You can set up a free iCloud account when you first set up iPhone, or later in Settings. See iCloud.

  • Set up an account. Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account. If you’re setting up an iCloud account, you can also do that in Settings > iCloud.

You can add contacts using an LDAP or CardDAV account, if your company or organization supports it. See Add contacts.

You can add calendars using a CalDAV calendar account, and you can subscribe to iCalendar (.ics) calendars or import them from Mail. See Use multiple calendars.
